This has nothing directly to do with homeschooling, but many Bible-believing homeschoolers are also involved in pro-life activities, and one of the problems that motivated many early homeschoolers was the promotion of abortion in the public schools. The fact is that one of the "idols" (and I mean that almost literally) of the postmodern humanist/feminist/leftist culture is the right to abortion. World Magazine, on May 12, 2007, reported that lawmakers in both houses of Congress introduced companion bills to enshrine in federal law a woman’s "fundamental right" to abort a child after the Supreme Court’s recent decision to uphold a ban on partial-birth abortions. Jerrold Nadler (D.-NY), the House’s chief sponsor of the bill, said the measure is necessary because "we can no longer rely on the Supreme Court to protect a woman’s constitutional right to choose." Of course, since the abortion advocates have not been able to win in the electoral process, they have depended on the courts to uphold their agenda, but they may find out that he who lives by the courts might just also die by the courts. And what is this "constitutional right"? The Constitution says absolutely nothing about abortion. That is just a figment of their imagination! Of course, Rep. Nadler will never say that what he actually means by a "woman’s constitutional right to choose" is to kill her unborn baby. World Magazine noted, "With Democrats in control of Congress the measure could pass, but a Bush veto is almost certain." Pray for President Bush! At the same time, a number of new Democrats elected in 2006 claimed to be "pro-life." We shall see. Duncan Hunter (R.-CA) has introduced H. R. 618, the Life at Conception Act, which both establishes personhood for the unborn and also asserts Congressional authority to protect the right to life of every unborn child according to the 14th Amendment. Martin Fox of the National Pro-Life Alliance noted, "With many new Democrat members of Congress claiming to be ‘pro-life,’ we must hold their feet to the fire and demand true pro-life action," saying that pressure must be brought to bear on Democrats like Heath Shuler (D.-NC), Charlie Wilson (D.-OH), Joe Donnelly (D.-IN), Jason Altmire (D.-PA), and Chris Carney (D.-PA), all of whom were elected on pro-life platforms but have not cosponsored the Life at Conception Act as yet, and concluding, "Pro-lifers must now firmly remind them what so many abortion apologists have learned the hard way in past elections–that support for abortion-on-demand or failure to defend human life will not be tolerated." Will they just talk the talk to be elected, or will they actually walk the walk? That is the question!
